Pandapas Pond

Yesterday we decided to take the day off from school.   Hubby had to run a few errands in Blacksburg.  This little pond is close to B-burg so we thought it would be a nice to have a picnic and hike around the pond.  We had a really fun day.

This is one of the side trails you can walk on.  We stayed on the main trail that goes around the pond.

We saw lots of ducks and geese.  Also turtles.  I will show the turtle pictures and some more of the scenery tomorrow.   Temperature is so nice here this morning.  The birds are singing beautifully.  I have bread rising and a pork tenderloin roast ready to put in the oven for supper.  I think it is going to be a good day. 

Enjoy your day and God bless.

Grayson Highlands State Park

We had so much fun today!  We went with our friends, the Horns, to this place called Grayson Highlands State Park.  It was very beautiful there.  This is one of the first places went.

Then we begin our hike.

The temperature was at least 20 degrees cooler with a heavy wind.  It actually felt like we were walking in air conditioning.

Here’s one of the main things we came to see.  Wild ponies.  We did not see very many but the few we did see definitely made the trip worthwhile.  I had so many beautiful pictures of the scenery it was very difficult to choose what picture to post.  I know this is a lot of pictures but I really could have put much more.  Finally a happy crew ready to start the climb back down.

I pray your day was as nice as ours.  Take care and God bless.
